Conservative Engineer Fired by Google for Standing for His Rights Pleads for Donations

The tech giant continues to discriminate.

Kevin Cernekee, a conservative Republican engineer who used to work at Google, claims he was fired by the tech giant because of his political beliefs and then sued in arbitration.

Cernekee has created a GoFundMe to help raise funds to continue his fight against Big Brother as Google continues their aggressive censorship campaign against conservative viewpoints.

“Google has claimed that it updated over a dozen workplace policies due to my efforts. But retaliation remains endemic at the company, and the fight is only beginning. Any money raised through this campaign will help offset my legal expenses,” he wrote.

Cernekee appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight last week to talk about his story:

“Historically, there’s been a lot of bullying at Google,” Cernekee said to the Wall Street Journal. “There’s a big political angle, and they treat the two sides differently.”

Google denies that they fired Cernekee because of his political beliefs, alleging that he misused company equipment, but Cernekee claims that is an excuse used to cloak their partisan bias.

“We enforce our workplace policies without regard to political viewpoint,” a Google spokesperson told Fox News in an email. “Lively debate is a hallmark of Google’s workplace culture; harassment, discrimination, and the unauthorized access and theft of confidential company information is not.”

However, Google’s claims are contradicted by the words of their top personnel. One executive was caught on video by Project Veritas boasting that Google was manipulating their algorithms to prevent President Trump from winning re-election in 2020.

“Elizabeth Warren is saying we should break up Google. And like, I love her but she’s very misguided, like that will not make it better it will make it worse, because all these smaller companies who don’t have the same resources that we do will be charged with preventing the next Trump situation, it’s like a small company cannot do that,” Google’s Head of Responsible Innovation Jen Gennai said.

“We all got screwed over in 2016, again it wasn’t just us, it was, the people got screwed over, the news media got screwed over, like, everybody got screwed over so we’re rapidly been like, what happened there and how do we prevent it from happening again,” Gennai added.

Cernekee has filed complaints against the National Labor Relations Board regarding Google’s hostile and discriminatory business practices; at least one of which are still pending.

“By granting left wing employees a heckler’s veto and terrorizing anyone who disagrees with their groupthink, Google will continue to use its monopoly power over the control of information to impose a narrow ideological agenda on its users and employees,” Cernekee wrote in an op/ed about his ordeal.

President Donald Trump criticized Google in a series of tweets earlier today, in which he referenced the Cernekee case specifically.

Until the Trump administration is willing to hold Google accountable for this predatory behavior, they will remain a bigger threat to our democracy than Russia ever could be.

Twitter Launches Crowdsourced Fact-Checking System Called “Birdwatch” to Fight “Misinformation”

Who saw this coming?

Published

Twitter has rolled out a new feature to fight what they consider to be “misinformation.”

The new feature, released Monday, is called Birdwatch. In a post on the Twitter Blog, Vice President of Product Keith Coleman writes that Birdwatch will allow people to identify information in tweets that “they believe is misleading” and to write notes “that provide informative context.”

We believe this approach has the potential to respond quickly when misleading information spreads, adding context that people trust and find valuable,” Coleman said.

As of now Birdwatch is a standalone site, though Twitter claims they will eventually make notes posted to Birdwatch directly visible on certain tweets.

VP of Product Coleman continues: “In this first phase of the pilot, notes will only be visible on a separate Birdwatch site. On this site, pilot participants can also rate the helpfulness of notes added by other contributors. These notes are being intentionally kept separate from Twitter for now, while we build Birdwatch and gain confidence that it produces context people find helpful and appropriate. Additionally, notes will not have an effect on the way people see Tweets or our system recommendations.”

The format of Birdwatch will supposedly combine elements of Wikipedia and Reddit’s moderation tools, according to NBC News. Birdwatch users will be able to flag tweets from a dropdown menu on Twitter itself, but discussion about the flagged tweets will only be able to take place on the Birdwatch site. Birdwatch will also implement a rating system that will allow users to upvote or downvote the notes of others.

This is the logical development of Twitter’s commitment to identify and suppress content they deem “false” or “dangerous.” Keep an eye out for more such features in the future.
